In community programs, collaboration, integration and commitment are sure ingredients for success. But is there more? Organizations need volunteers to be sustainable. Being open to exploring and investing in new services and technologies will deliver high-impact programs and services. Are short and long term goals helping or hindering success and utilizing the talents of your volunteer teams? Efforts to be more effective and efficient are key traits in our rapidly changing time. With success at the core, a willingness to try new ideas allow your project to thrive and grow. Add new tools for strategic planning or ideas to use with staff, volunteers and partners allowing for the capacity to adapt. This course is one of four in the Volunteer Management Certificate. Courses are not prerequisite or in sequence.
